psoriasis dissipate with meds ?
Aug 15, 2007

Does Psoriasis tend to dissipate with HART ? I have some flat redened skin on my face, and if this dissipates over time with HART at least there would be something to look forward to.

Response from Dr. Henry

In my experience the impact of HAART (effective HIV therapy) on the course of psoriaisis is variable and tough to predict. Flat reddedned skin on the face only may be due to some condition other than psoriasis (such as seborrheic dermatitis). I recommend discussing with your HIV specialist and consider a consultation with a dermatologist. KH
